Webinar - How businesses can attract talent from schools

This hands-on workshop will inspire and guide companies on how to connect with school-age students and engage with your future workforce. Learn how businesses can get ready to support our young people in schools to understand the future of work.

Many businesses struggle to recruit and retain staff and may not be attracting the right candidates. Some organisations focus on University graduates, but many sectors need to go further back down the pipeline and work with schools. 

Early engagement can encourage school leavers to join your business or help them to choose the right path through education to learn the skills required to work with you.

Key topics:

• Benefits to the business

• Benefits to the young person

• Myths and misconceptions

• How you can get involved

• Planning for the future

This event is delivered as part of the Workforce for the Future programme, which helps your business identify employee development areas, plan and adapt for the future, upskill and retrain employees and access new talent.

Business West is delivering Workforce for the Future in collaboration with other partners and the West of England Combined Authority.
